They're pretty good if you're serious about cycling, though I always think it's better to just get out there on the road. The issue for me was that it was just a bit boring to pedal in front of the telly and that. I'd either rather be at a gym or out in the real world.

Don't get an air resistance one, whatever you do. Fluid or magnetic is what you want. Also keep in mind that you WILL need some sort of fan pointing at you while you're doing it, you'll get incredibly hot very quickly.

I used them for years when I was training seriously. They work very well if they're set up properly. They don't feel like real riding, but they're close enough. It's boring as fuck, but it's not too bad if you listen to podcasts or whatever. I made a little desk that clipped onto my handlebars so I could catch up on my reading.

If you use slick tyres, a magnetic or fluid trainer and a concrete floor, they're reasonably quiet. Treaded tyres, a fan-based trainer or a hollow wooden floor will make a right old racket. I preferred the units with continually-variable resistance like the CycleOps Magneto - the ones with a resistance adjustment lever are a bit fiddly for interval training.

You'll probably want to do your turbo sessions in an unheated garage or shed, otherwise you'll boil your arse off. You don't get the cooling effect of the wind on a turbo, so you get hot quickly. You might still want to set up a fan if you tend to run hot. If you sweat heavily you'll want to drape a towel over your frame, otherwise your sweat will rot your paintwork.

2669 Voice "tuning"
Is it too late to do something with your voice if you are 22?

It is, well, "inconstant". That is, the speed, the loudness, the pitch tend to vary; sometimes up to the point being slightly uncontrollable (especially loudness; I may pronounce words loudly I intended to pronounce quietly and vice versa). The resulting sound is obviously not very nice, probably rasping and somewhat unclear.

I cannot provide any examples as I have neither the microphone, nor the working jack for it. For better or worse.

>I found out that I sound somewhat like a pretentious cunt, apart from screeching. Not a pleasant discovery indeed but still better than ignorance.

When I speak quietly, my voice goes really deep. Also when I'm drunk enough, girls have told me it goes sexually deep, Barry White style. When I'm tense, however, or if I become animated, it can go high pitched. I've also realised that I mumble and mutter at least 50% of the time. It really is eye opening recording yourself and listening/watching back, I come across as a total gimp sometimes and then at others as Mega Mr Monty Confidanté the Sexy Baritone Sexagram Man. Your body language, posture, tone, choice of words, delivery, timing, and yes, pitch - all these things combine to create an emphasis and provide emotion (or lack of) to your topic or point, or offer an allusion to what else you've got going on behind the eyes. It might sound shallow, but I've noticed the different ways people react to me based on my uncontrollable shifts in all of those qualities I just listed.

Margaret Thatcher famously subjected herself to speech training when she was running for Prime Minister the first time, and by that time, she was well into middle age. If you see early footage of her, her voice had a quite unpleasant, annoyingly shrieky tone and pitch to it. Like an endlessly lamenting housewife or a stern Victorian headmistress. But she was able to smooth all that out... and even if you hated her and her way of politics, you had to admit that her voice was not unpleasant to listen to.

I'll look this up, thank you.
Can affirm about speaking quietly, to an extent. Should I raise it to normal levels, things go not so smoothly.

I still wonder why at times I mumble and mutter - just like you - and at times sound almost decent. I lost the access to the recordings db recently so no free listening.

Hello. I've made my own fitness arms buildening regime. Thing.

Everynight I do:

40 x dumbbells curls,
40 x hammer lifts with dumbbells,
40 x dumbbell shoulder press,

I then do 30 of the above, the 20 then 10.

How is this regime? I've noticed my arms and shoulders have got a lot better. I've been doing 30 of each then descending in 10s for about 2 months now and I've just knocked it up to 40 then descending in 10s. I do a lot of cardio, running pretty much every free night.

If you come into possession of any money, I highly recommend exchanging it for a couple of Buffs® (or the dirt cheap unbranded ones you can get off Ebay or shops like trespass.)
You can squash them down to nothing in a back pocket, and you've got a hat or scarf whenever you need one.

>Would earplugs work do you think?

Not him but I find headphones help so yeah. Earmuffs also work and that is one of the reasons they exist.

What is happening is cold air is getting into your ear canal which is covered with sensitive nerve endings and lacks anything in the way of protection from the cold. Combined this leads to a brain-freeze in the ear.

My problem with running outside is the first twenty minutes. I can do it on a machine, I can establish a nice rhythm, get over that first wheezing bit, and then I'm good for a long time - outside in the cold, it seems to take a lot longer and there is more chance I would give up early on a run.

Is it ok to mix ostarine with cough syrup?

I hope you're not planning to take Ostarine unless you have a proper PCT planned out.

Given that you don't even specify what fucking active ingredients are in your cough syrup that might possibly interact with Ostarine (highly fucking unlikely in any case) I doubt that you even know what PCT is.

Mods, I know that the britfa is mostly a bunch of near-alcoholic tubby beardy white men with glasses but can we do something about this cunt who can't stop posting utter bullshit in /fat/ ? Or at least filter troll threads with fucking Hitler OP images.

Unless you're a proper chubby fucker then you, unlike 90% of people it gets pushed on, are actually a perfect candidate for "do Starting Strength and eat a lot". Not being able to do a single pushup is not healthy even for the most twiglike of people.

Well as a chubby fucker you should lose weight until you get to the point that you can do a push-up. I assume you're at least able to run, right? Even if not very far? Start doing that every day. It'll do wonders for your heart and lungs. And more importantly combine that with watching what you eat. Cut out any easy sources of sugar like soft drinks and alcohol and sweets and excessive amounts of bread. Standard stuff ladm8.

R8 my rep scheme.

5, 10, 15, 20, 1 min rest between sets.

Same weight for all sets. The first 3 sets serve as a pre-exhaustion for the final set.

You can create other schemes with a different base number. E.g. 3, 6, 9, 12 or 2, 4, 6, 8.

Strongly recommend it OP, seriously helped my back issues, plus it's great for flexibility and balance so I'm hoping that'll save me in old age.

I've done it at several places in a couple different countries and I've never encountered anyone saying things like 'drawing positive energy in and expelling the negative'. Maybe try elsewhere or do it at home? That seems like a very small thing to stop you from doing it though.

I used to do weights as part of the man thing and became a tank, as I've got older I find yoga and calisthenics far superior to the crossfit shit. Lifting tears muscles and is bad for the joints, yoga is much better. I'm just as strong but half the size I was doing weights and feel much better.

Get in here fatlads.

I've made an effort to properly lose weight but have stalled in the last 2 months - and it's starting to creep up. I used to lift weights 3x/week and control the diet, but I can't lift for a while until some medical stuff gets sorted. This has taken a bit of a hit on my progress - or more likely,ive used it an excuse to slack.

What's your story?

P.s. I track calories and weight using my fitness pal.
